“Dear Rita Krakower Margolis,
May 13, 1998 you posted a search for the above subject.
Very recently, by finding and connecting with my Goodman cousin in MD who is
a Goldstein descendant - his mother was Ruth Goldstein - he forwarded a copy

Topory. Two witnesses were brought to the City Council, Yankl Walishewer

that he was born in 1851 and he is currently 19 years old."
